Trail shared by Tom Robson

A scenic yet nearly flat run around a beautiful lake.

Overview

Although Grand Teton is one of the most popular parks in the U.S., and this route is highly accessible, you'll rarely see another soul on this awesome track.

You can do this run in either direction, but know that the best views are to be had on the northern shore of the lake. The Teton Range is clearly visible across the lake on the horizon.

Description

Starting from the Two Ocean Lake trailhead, the Two Ocean Lake Trail splits north or south. The north shore is split into two trails - take the higher of the two routes, as the low route is a horse route and has no structures over streams and wet areas. The majority of the northern shore winds through meadows and has consistently awesome views.

The south shore of the lake is more heavily forested and therefore has fewer views of the mountains. It does however, have some intermittent meadows that offer great wildflower views.

Flora & Fauna

Keep an eye out for waterfowl and moose as this marshy wetland area is prime territory for both. Most importantly, bring bear spray as grizzlies are encountered often in this area.
